Miguel is one of the leading functional nutrition practitioners in Britain. Since qualifying with a first class honours in Nutritional Medicine in 2009 Miguel has coached thousands of individuals to better health by means of personalised nutrition programmes. His specialist area is cognitive decline / brain ageing, with a focus on risk reduction from a functional medicine perspective, particularly where there the immune and neuroendocrine systems may be suffering from a degree of imbalance. He was awarded a Santander Bank scholarship for doctoral research and is currently looking at the effects of the Bredesen Protocol for the management of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI).
Miguel's approach to functional medicine puts findings from functional tests in context by focusing on your individual needs, and particularly on the relationship between your genes, your metabolism and loss of cognitive function / brain ageing. In his clinics Miguel often uses genetic testing alongside functional assessment as part of the process of managing neurodegenerative and endocrine conditions, using functional and genetic assessment as tools to make clinical decisions as to how to improve an individual's health with the right nutrition and the right state of mind.
You may know Miguel for his social media posts or for his role as Chair and spokesperson of the British Association for Applied Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy, a role he’s had since 2011. He is also the Editor in Chief of the Nutrition Evidence Database: http://nutrition-evidence.com/.
